In his poem, “Hollow Men,” T.S. Eliot writes, “This is the way the world ends / Not with a bang, but with a whimper.”
The words could just as well have been written about independent prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion and interference in the 2016 presidential election and potential obstruction of justice. While Mueller, his team and the mainstream media don’t seem to quite understand just yet, the investigation is essentially over.
To date, Mueller has shown no evidence of Russian collusion in the campaigns of either Donald Trump or Hillary Rodham Clinton, but has gained indictments of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and one of his business partners, Rick Gates, for activities and financial issues unrelated to the 2016 campaign.
